    One Drive-Windows 10 - I want it gone!


    I just bought my Lenovo desktop and One Drive was activated. I don't know diddly about. It's backing up things, red Xs everywhere, syncing, I have dual folders and files, etc. I do not like it and I would like to do the following:

    *Retrieve or delete all of the files that were backed up on it;

    **Eliminate One Drive completely!

    *No backups or anything to backup my computer. I have Drop Box and software to do my backups. Microsoft can't seem to make anything easy.

    I just want the standard C drive without any backup software except what I want to install.

    Please help this is driving me nuts looking at and trying to find my files.

    Specs and screen shot available.

    Enable or Disable OneDrive Integration

    Before you do this, you might look at the Related Tutorials at end of post to see if there is a less drastic fix (like unlink PC). Also, move the contents of Onedrive folders to desired location so there's no data loss.
